I hope you had a lovely, relaxing Thanksgiving weekend. We decided to escape the Black Friday craze and stayed home, baking and cooking a lot. I still had a loaf of artisan bread, a few yams, roasted Brussels sprouts, miso gravy and cranberry sauce left.

The obvious dish that came to mind was to make "yamburgers". I served them in toasted brioche buns with cranberry sauce and a roasted garlic butter spread. They fit my Meatless Monday tradition perfectly!

After my husband Lulu got sick (a nasty cold, then bronchitis), I got sick too. Now both of us are well again, but the rest of the family, not so much. They all spent the weekend in bed with watery eyes and a tissue box by their side. It was not a happy sight.

I find a nice hot bowl of soup to be one of the few comforts when I’m not feeling well, so I made a big pot with with Japanese white sweet potatoes, Brussels sprouts and leftover chicken and flavored it with ginger, onions and turmeric. It got me thinking that this soup would be perfect as a starter on Thanksgiving, or the day after using Thanksgiving leftover yams, Brussels sprouts and turkey.  Enjoy!

Now that the election is over, we can turn our sights to something that everyone can agree on: making delicious Thanksgiving food! But in food, as in politics, you can’t escape partisan ideology, and I find that people have a love or hate reaction to Brussels sprouts. That’s unfortunate, because even though green beans and collard greens are part of many people’s Thanksgiving tradition, I think that Brussels sprouts deserve consideration as well.

One way to get people to feel more comfortable with an ingredient they may not love is to dress it up with universally liked flavors. In this dish, I combined seared Brussels sprouts with garlic pesto pasta. The mild sweetness enhances and reinforces the garlicky goodness of the pesto. It’s familiar enough to make everyone at your dinner table smile. It also sneaks in some greens, which I think is really important on carb-heavy Thanksgiving.

My husband Lulu and I are leaving our baby with her grandparents tomorrow and will visit Brussels, Belgium. To mark the occasion, I cooked Brussels sprouts with châtaignes pelées au feu (peeled, fire-roasted peeled chestnuts). Sautéed with shallots in butter, Brussels sprouts have a starchy texture similar to the chataignes and make a wonderful side dish.

For added color, I added sun-dried tomatoes.

The preparation of this roasted Brussels sprouts tart may seem a little tedious, but with a little organization, you'll be able to do it in a breeze. In the morning, I roasted the Brussels sprouts along with red onions and bell peppers. I blended them into a thick paste with fromage blanc and Asiago cheese. An hour before dinner, I pre-cooked the tart shells. When it was finally dinner time, I placed the filling and topped that tartlets with whole roasted Brussels sprouts I previously warmed up. 

If you serve a large vegetarian crowd, a simple salad filled with nuts (for added protein) will suffice to complete the meal. Otherwise, you could also accompany the savory tarts with chicken in creamy mustard sauce (that was the alternative choice for dinner). Bon appétit!
